  •  hmmm. Maybe I'm a tad smarter than I gave myself (7+ / 0-)

    credit for being!  

    but that makes me wonder....what the hell is a guaca???

    Guacamole was made by the Aztecs by at least the 16th century.The name comes from an Aztec dialect via Nahuatl  which literally translates to "avocado sauce".
    From wiki, here's a little of the Legend Of The Mole:
    A common legend of its creation takes place at the Convent of Santa Rosa in Puebla early in the colonial period. Upon hearing that the archbishop was going to visit, the convent nuns went into a panic because they were poor and had almost nothing to prepare. The nuns prayed and brought together the little bits of what they did have, including chili peppers, spices, day-old bread, nuts, and a little chocolate. They killed an old turkey, cooked it and put the sauce on top; the archbishop loved it, when the nun was asked the name of the dish, she replied, "I made a Mole". Mole was the ancient word for mix, now this world mosly refers to the dish, and rarely is used to signify other kinds of mix in spanish .
    Get yer red hot moles here!!

    We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.
